Sky has launched the first look at the new original drama ‘Gangs of London’, taking us on an immersive journey into the hidden heart of the capital.
The nine-part drama is set in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic and multicultural cities. It tells the story of a city being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it and the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family is assassinated.
For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Colm Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Billions of pounds flowed through his organisation each year. But now he’s dead – and nobody knows who ordered the hit. With rivals everywhere, it’s up to the impulsive Sean Wallace (Joe Cole), with the help of the Dumani family headed by Ed Dumani (Lucian Msamati) to take his father’s place.
If the situation wasn’t already dangerous enough, Sean’s assumption of power causes ripples in the world of international crime. Perhaps the one man who might be able to help him and be his ally is Elliot Finch (Sope Dirsu), who up until now, has been one of life’s losers, a lowlife chancer with a mysterious interest in the Wallace family. But as the wind of fate blows, Elliot finds himself transported to the inner workings of the largest criminal organisation in London.
The series, which will launch on Sky Atlantic and TV streaming service NOW TV later this year, stars Sope Dirisu, Joe Cole, Colm Meaney, Lucian Msamati and Michelle Farley.
